    WATERLOO, ON, Aug. 19 /CNW/ - Brick Brewing Co. Limited (TSX: BRB) today
started shipping its NEW Red Baron Lime just in time for Ontario beer drinkers
to enjoy a lime-flavoured beer that is readily available, tastes great and is
affordable. Red Baron Lime is a refreshing, light, easy-drinking beer in a
clear glass bottle with a splash of 100% natural lime flavour and gives
Ontario its only locally-brewed lime beer at a price that will go down just as
easy as the beer itself at $9.35 for a six-pack plus deposit.
    "Ontario has a pent up lust for lime and we're going to make sure no one
is disappointed this Labour Day weekend when they want to enjoy a refreshing
new lime flavoured beer," said Sean Dennis, Marketing Director, Brick Brewing
Company. Red Baron Lime will be delivered in ample quantities to all of the
450 Brewer's Retail outlets in Ontario.
    "The launch of Red Baron Lime will be supported by one of the largest
advertising campaigns ever undertaken by Brick Brewing, with radio, print,
billboard and transit shelter advertising across the province and a social
media campaign that asks beer drinkers to share their "lust for lime" at," said George Croft, President and CEO, Brick Brewing
Company. "As part of Brick Brewing's 'support local, buy local' focus,
consumers can also enter a contest for a chance to win an all expenses paid
'limecation' for six to a local Ontario Resort," Croft added.
    Red Baron Lime will add a little extra flavour to celebrations in
September of this year when Brick Brewing continues to celebrate its 25th
anniversary as Ontario's first craft brewery. "We've developed a clear, crisp
lime beer with a very natural citrus nose to give it a refreshing drinkability
thanks to its lighter alcohol content," adds Dennis, who is excited to include
Red Baron Lime as part of the already great craft beer portfolio of Brick
Brewing brands, including Waterloo Dark, Red Baron Premium Blonde Lager and
Laker Lager.
